We just finished replacing the shock. It was actually pretty easy. The old one was completely seized. It would not compress. There were no visible signs of damage. The car rides as it should now.:D

Rock Auto only has the drivers side shock. I can get one from a local AC Delco supply house with my public safety discount for around $450.00. Every online supplier I've tried is out of stock.

Baja Designs Soltek

Will an XR650L with a stock stator be able to power a Baja Designs Soltek Halogen or HID headlight. It looks like they need about 100 watts powering up. I would like to hear some personal experiences.
